German Chocolate Maker to buy Nicaraguan Cocoa

The Ritter Sport Company will purchase 100% of the organic cocoa production from the South Atlantic Zone.

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

The bases of the agreement that Dr. Gerardo Escudero, representative of the Inter-American Institute for Agricultural Cooperation, IICA, is working on also include the purchase of 100% of the production, support for quality improvement processes and the costs of certification.

Elnuevodiario reported statements by the IICA representative: "According to our discussions, we are talking about between 27 and 30 tons that will be bought by this company as certified cocoa at a very good price. The cooperatives succeeded in negotiating a very favorable purchase price. Having a buyer for the production is important, and having a difference of $700 in price compared to conventional cocoa is an achievement."
